Modern Exotic Living Room

Simple style and white painted beams evoke serenity in designer Jacques Grange's Portuguese retreat.

"I have always dreamed of owning a home with a space like this!" says Cassandra LaValle, author of the popular design blog, Coco + Kelley. "I love the idea of escaping from the rest of the house — and all of the noise, chores and distractions that come with it — by retreating to a lofty, light-filled room. The subtle Moroccan design elements and all-white palette invite relaxation and quiet."
